Hour of Birth Stones
Over thousands of years, a tradition has developed, associating certain gemstones with times of the year.
It is likely that pagan beliefs associated the time of year of a person's birth with certain characteristics. Pagan cultures are ones in which the believers tend to be in tune with nature and the earth's cycles and seasons.
These pagan beliefs became incorporated into later religions including judaism and christianity. Astrology is also a link with these earlier beliefs.

In a similar manner, there are gemstones which are believed to correspond with the hour of one's birth. We must admit that we do not know the origins or history of these particular associations. The cynical may wish to believe that this is merely marketing by the jewellery industry!
